Book Review-Shopping is Murder (McKinley Mysteries: Short & Sweet Cozies Book 6) -Carolyn Arnold

Monday, December 9, 2019

I have read many of this authors FBI Profiler books--but this is the first of her cozys I have read. I found it amazingly easy to read and fun!! It features husband and wife team who both used to be police persons--but they came into a LOT of money and quit the force. They occasionally will help with cases but instead of getting paid--they request that what would have been paid be given to charity. They really do not need the money!

It was nearing Christmas and Sara decided that they should go shopping at a mall--on Black Friday no less! Sean wasn't too keen on the idea--but off they went. Then they heard screams and ultimately realized someone jumped or was pushed off the 2nd floor--the man was dead--BUT Sara suddenly saw an old friend and realized it was her friend's husband.

They ended up working on the case and with their friend who was still in the police department managed to solve the case--however you are never going to believe who did it and neither did Sara!!

I truly believe you are going to enjoy this clean cozy as much as I did!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Sean and Sara McKinley find more than a bargain this Black Friday…

“This is the perfect mystery to sink into… Keeps you in suspense and turning the pages until the surprising climax.” –Bixler Reviews

The busiest shopping day of the year should be all about the discounts, but Sean and Sara’s trip to the mall brings them a murder to solve. Though the police think the man purposely took a flying leap from the second level to the concourse, the widow is adamant her husband would never have done that. But it’s Sara’s past connection with the widow that has the McKinleys looking into the matter.

The answers aren’t coming quickly—not with mall security dropping the ball and no seeming motive for murder. If the McKinleys are going to find out the truth, it will take unconventional means, a little undercover work, and the help of their friend Sergeant Jimmy Voigt. If they’re lucky, they just might get this case wrapped up in time for the holidays. Maybe even with a pretty little bow.
